Pro guitarist and Elixir® Strings artist Marc Seal introduces a string skipping exercise to add to your daily practice routine. In this short acoustic guitar video lesson, watch as Marc adds some ear-catching interest to his playing by using wide intervals in his picking patterns. Although jumping from one string to a nonadjacent one needs an accurate picking hand technique to execute effectively, with practice you’ll find it an invaluable tool to use in both rhythm and lead parts.
“Elixir Strings always sound stellar and really last! Because of the coating, they always feel like a new set of strings to me. Honestly, I love them!” – Marc Seal, Phosphor Bronze with NANOWEB® Coating, 13-56
